Been away a long time.
First, I got booted out because my spam blockers at work messed with my account. Second, Ben got RSV last week and ended up in the hospital for 5 days. He was released yesterday. Long story short, RSV messes with asthma kids, and he could barely breathe. Had to call 911 and his saturations were awful - 70s and 80s. Rushed to emerg, admitted on oxygen, ventolin, atrovent, dex and then alvesco. Doing great now - you'd never know he was so sick just a few days ago. Kids are freaking amazing they way they recover from serious illness. Looking forward to catching up on the board and debating again soon!
Welcome back So glad your little guy came through okay! That had to be so scary.
Wicked scary to be with a child who is struggling to breathe and feeling helpless as a parent. I'm glad he's fine now and all is good. Welcome back!

I feel for you, have been through that experience one of my boys got RSV when he was 3 months old and spent a week in the hospital. It is torture watching them put tubes down a little babies throat to suction out his lungs. The bad thing was I was out of town for my niece's wedding so ended up in the hospital for a week not even close to home! I'm glad everything is ok now and he's bouncing back.
